Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)
Widing's Way was bought and remodeled by Roger and Karen Widing, who own Widing Custom Homes in Traverse City. This 1940's cabin was a remodel project for the Widing's and their 2 girls in 2003. We enjoyed bringing the cottage up to date and decorating it in pure northern style.
Owner purchased this Cottage in 2001
Why Owner chose Harbor Springs
For years we have always enjoyed the Norman Rockwell beauty of Harbor Springs, the shopping,the beaches,and the drive along the tunnel of trees. We have many memories of wonderful times at our cottage, Widing's Way, and we hope you will also. One of the most beautiful places to see the fall colors in Sept. and October.
What makes this Cottage unique
Some of our most memorable times are sitting around the campfire, roasting marshmallows, and watching the sun sets. We also enjoy reading books on the porch, and most of all enjoying the wonderful beach.

We had a wonderful weekend, even with the rainy weather! The area and setting were just gorgeous. We drove the full length of the tunnel of trees - all the way to Leggs Inn for dinner one night.
The craftsmanship and details in the cottage were wonderful, especially the screened porch. It was cozy and perfect for reading a book while it rained. We took a walk down to the lake and found a couple of Petoskey stones. We had a lovely stay and will definitely come back.
Thank you very much. So glad you enjoyed your stay at our little slice of heaven.
Fun family trip
Property worked out well for our last minute plans to stay in the area. We are glad we chose this property.
This place is more than what you could ask for when it comes to a cabin up north. The views of the lake, sunsets, and the fall leaves were all amazing. The cabin itself was impressively clean. A very easy place to find and it has pretty much everything you need! Location is amazing! Stayed 2 nights and it just wasn't long enough! The owner was fast to respond (which can be hard on VRBO), very accommodating and friendly. We just loved this place. My golden retriever came and seemed to love the place as well! :)
The owner was super attentive and answered multiple questions on moments notice. Have never dealt with such attentive and helpful owners. We had an enjoyable, relaxing vacation. The trail down to the beach was easy and we enjoyed it. The beach was amazing!!! Absolutely beautiful and like none other we have ever stayed at. We went to Petoskey a couple of times and enjoyed the shops and a couple movies. Spent another day at Mackinac and an afternoon in Harbor Springs. All are easy trips of 20-45 min. The kitchen is super small, which I expected. But the biggest disappointment was the kitchen not being very well stocked. This made cooking very challenging. I was glad I brought my own dish cloths as well and we bought a pot just so we could make mac & cheese. . . which we left at the cabin for others. The other thing I would mention is the décor is very animal/hunting like. I respect the owners taste and this is probably very appealing for many, but our 8 year old daughter had a nightmare her first night in the loft, of animals attacking her. (She never has nightmares normally). The bear rug with growling teeth in the loft had to be rolled up and put away to prevent troubling her and she still couldn't sleep up there the rest of the week. The giant moose head next to the loft probably wasn't helpful either. This is just something I will be sure to ask about in the future! The shower needs some work as well, as it was useless to have a temp control/knob, as it does it's own thing, often giving you a not-so-hot shower. We had a great, relaxing week and will treasure the beautiful memories forever.
